First Communion | Zoe Donovan | Boston

Occasionally, in addition to weddings, I document other life milestones.  Here are a few images of Zoe's first communion at Sacred Heart Church in Roslindale.  It was a beautiful day, and particularly momentous because I photographed her parent's wedding nearly 9 years ago. donovan-20

Excited in the the aisle seats, the children dressed in white, wait for their name to be called.


Singing for their families at the end of the service, papers dropped on the ground.

Joyful after the ceremony.
